They reported an object with a red beacon...

TORONTO - The truth could be out there in Toronto’s skies.

Bet you didn’t know you could look up the Canadian version of The X-Files online. And to be clear, we’re not talking about a TV show north of the border mirroring the much-anticipated reboot back on the air.

Archived webpages of the Library and Archives of Canada hold a database of UFO sightings that have been reported over the years in our country.

So in honour of the return of Mulder and Scully to probe the paranormal, here are some GTA reports of unidentified flying objects spanning the 60s till the 80s.

- X-Files? More like Press-Files. One report from 1980 shows various agencies were asked about the “possible origin” of a U.F.O.

“It was found that this aircraft was in fact the Toronto Sun advertising airplane,” the report dryly notes.

When the complainant was called back with this finding, they too said they have since recognized the plane as one used by the paper for advertising.

- In Jan. 1968, several witnesses thought they saw what may be a “plane on fire.” They reported an object with a red beacon, with windows around the centre and light coming from inside. It was described as “large as Maple Leaf Gardens,” hovering above trees. “Lights from the object lit up the whole area.”

- In Sept. 1973 reports came in from a house on Gerrard St. of an oval-shaped object the size of an aircraft, “four white lights in a diamond, flashing light underneath.” The same month, another member of the family poetically reported something that looked “like a star only a lot closer to Earth.”
